In choosing a major, ability counts as much as interest. In addition to considering what you enjoy, think about times and places when you excelled… Let your choice of a major reflect a discovery of your passions and potentials.
List your core values, such as contributing to society, achieving financial security and professional recognition, enjoying good health, or making time for fun.
â€”David Ellis, The Essential Guide to Becoming a Master Student
